Miller, J.R. - Devotional Hours with the Bible (8 vols, devotions format)
James Russell Miller
9.x - 10.x
Note: This content is in devotional format, not the general book format (see end of file description for more information).
J. R. Miller was an author very similar to F.B. Meyer, both in his writing style and content.
Excerpt from the Preface
Another way of studying the Bible is in order to get from it practical lessons for our own daily common life. What does the passage teach us? What Divine instruction have we in it for ourselves?
The book does not attempt to cover every chapter; to do this would make it altogether too long — it deals only with that appear to be leading and representative portions of the Bible.
It is a book for use in the inner chamber where life receives its impulses for conduct, for duty, for service, and for devotion. The Bible is a very ancient book, but it is also a book for today. It brings us face to face with God, and its teachings are meant to guide us in all our ways.
About James Russell (J.R.) Miller
James Russell Miller was born in 1840 and died in 1912. Besides authoring over 80 books, booklets, and pamphlets, Dr. J.R. Miller was the Editorial Superintendent of the Presbyterian Board of Publication and a very active pastor in a succession of Presbyterian churches. He was highly regarded as a pastor. The church he pastored before passing away had 66 members when he began and nearly 1,400 when he died!
The crucible of J.R. Miller's education was his service with the United States Christian Commission, an agency set up to minister to the troops, during the civil war. When the war ended Miller completed his theological studies and was ordained and installed on September 11, 1867. On June 22, 1870, when he was thirty, he married Miss Louise E. King.
The end of life on earth came without warning on the afternoon of July 2, 1912. JR’s wife, Louise Miller, and their only daughter, Mary Wanamaker Miller (Mrs. W.B. Mount), were present, but it was impossible to summon the sons — William King Miller and Russell King Miller. One moment Dr. Miller seemed to be resting quietly, and the next he was at rest.
Dr. Miller was one of the best selling Christian authors of his era. Rev. Miller’s books had a total circulation of over two million copies during his lifetime and in 1911 the Presbyterian Board of Publication, under his direction, published over 66 million copies of its periodicals.

I discarded that topx module entirely, retrieved the original text from GraceGems.org, and created this devotions module using the HTML tags already in place. Devotions format makes more sense for daily reading.
